    Ours (mid-western United States) was about the headship arrangement. "Presiding Over Your Household in a Fine Manner."

    Too many wimpy brothers and their headstrong wives. Also, the parents let their kids (2-6 yrs old) rule the household, screaming and crying until they get their way, yelling "NO" when told to be quiet, and are disrespectful to others.

    I'll admit... I agreed with the parents/children part (especially since the kids in our congregation are living terrors, I don't know many children outside the congregation who behave that disrespectfully), but even as a brother the "headship arrangement" has always bothered me. For me and my wife, it's an equal partnership, it's 50/50. Neither one of us has greater say than the other. So I guess it bothers me when either side tries taking more "authority" or "headship." I'm all about equality.

    Under the former system of things which has now passed away, local needs were scheduled in the OKM every 2/12 @ 10 minute allocations.

    Under the new system of things, it appears that local needs are scheduled 1/12....

    Jan MWB. - 8 mins

    Feb MWB. - 10 mins

    Mar MWB. - 5 mins

    Apr MWB. - 7 mins

    Time will tell what the significance of this change is.

    Ours was to support the mid-week field service arrangement regularly as they often had only 1 or 2 pioneers turning up. 2nd, was to report field service hours as many are irregular and 17 are inactive in a cong of 60 publishers

    When I heard this, I then realised that perhaps this is why they left the % increase box blank in the annual report. How can they claim the work is speeding up with all those KH builds and renovations needed if the % increase box was eiTher nil or negative

    hi NicolasKop Am I right in thinking you mean the annual UK report had left the percentage increase box blank and if so is this the first time this has happened? Did it happen in other countries does anyone know? Thanks for any replies!

    Ours was a video related to our upcoming CO visit. The video shows how much CO's love everybody all over the world.

    On why we should be wary of ones who no longer attend meetings. "Associating with them, no matter how well liked they were will lead us astray"

    Yes it was the Britain box left blank. I have no recollection of this previously being left blank in the Britain stats. Blank columns too, for several other countries this time.

    I see a great potential and some potential new names on this Forum soon ;-)
